Remember my thread about the birdnest I found?
Here it was:
Look what I found! (http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?s=&threadid=79024/)

High time now to give you all an update!!
Here is the nest again; the birdies were already getting flying lessons from their parents!


It was hard, but I had to keep my cats indoors all week, untill all little birds could fly well enough.
One morning, I let Inka out. She rushed right to one spot on the lawn, so I got suspicious and followed her. OMG, she had found a little bird with no tail yet, trying to fly.
I rescued it asap, took a picture (;) ;) ) , and put in back in the nest.

My rescue-operation helped!! yippie! Now to large birds fly around with 4 young ones, unreachable for our cats!!

Awww, they're adorable!! :D And it looks like momma picked a nice, shady spot to build their nest, too!

Right now, we have two nests outside of our door, inside our ficus trees; a sparrow nest on the left and a hummingbird nest on the right. We even got to watch baby sparrows grow up and leave the nest the first time it was built. :D The second time, though, the mother abandoned the babies, and we found them dead around our lawn because they had tried to fly. :( Then, another sparrow inherited the nest, and it just left mysteriously one day, didn't even lay eggs. But right now we have a happy mother hummingbird proudly sitting on her teensy nest! ;)

How precious! A job well done in keeping them protected from the kitties until they were raised. I just love that final picture, too cute for words http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v145/k9soul/GIFS/wub.gif

:) Aw... That's a great picture. Is it just me, or does his head look a bit to big for his body? hehe. Well done, rescuing (eh, sorry I can't spell) the little guy.

We have a bird nest every year above the same type of light the pigeons are on. It causes a bit of a problem, though, since the light is motion activated. At night, when they fly by it, it turns on and shines right into my bedroom window. :rolleyes: *sigh* Good thing they're so cute! :p
